Alexandra Kosteniuk, a 23 year old part time model, has taken home the crown of Women’s World Chess Champion. Alexandra has been making a name for herself in the world of chess since she became a the youngest woman to attain the title of Grand Master at only 14.
On top of that achievmant she also reached the world finals and age 17 and took home the European crown in 2004. She says her modeling is just a hobby thathelps to bring a sexier image to the world of chess – some old school chess folk feel it takes away from the intellectual properties of the game. I say let her play in the bikini and I will watch every move!
